As Obamacare slowly starts coming into effect, it’s starting to become clear that the sweeping healthcare reforms may be too much for the Obama administration to handle, with various exceptions, postponements and relaxing of standards being issued on a regular basis. Neugebauer said this is all indicative of this administration passing legislation so complex and convoluted that they can’t even enforce it all.

“I think what everybody’s beginning to realize is this piece of legislation, it’s just not manageable…almost each week, something comes up where “we’re not going to be able to do this” or “we can’t do that” or “We won’t be able to get it down in time.” And the truth of the matter is, this is law. And so, they’re basically ignoring the law which requires them to have these things in place by a certain date.”

Neugebauer went on to say the only way to fix Obamacare is to completely repeal it and just start all over again. He also addressed a caller’s question about the possibility of the house defunding Obamacare. Neugebauer replied that is was possible, but the Senate would most likely not allow it.

Neugebauer also talked about a piece of legislation he will be co-sponsoring that would define marriage as between a man and a woman. He explained that after the Supreme Court struck down the defense of marriage act, or DOMA, as unconstitutional, the next move would be to define marriage in the Constitution as a union between a man and a woman, thereby taking away the Constitutional argument for same-sex marriages.
